          More Academically Able and Upper Ability

          Academically More Able refers to students who are achieving, or who have the potential to achieve, in advance of their peers in one or more academic subjects.  Talented or more able refers to students who are achieving, or who have the potential to achieve, in advance of their peers in a practical area such as Music, PE or Art.  Each department identifies these students based on their own identification criteria.  Students may therefore demonstrate more able ability in one or more than one subject area.

          Upper ability is slightly different.  A secondary school student is considered Upper Ability if the average level he/she achieved in his/her Key Stage 2 English and Mathematics SATs is Level 5 or above. Year 7 students who completed the new Key Stage 2 exams in 2016 have been identified using an equivalent measure.

          Please click on the links below for subject information, providing details on how students are identified, what challenges they might face and what strategies are utilised and encouraged to ensure they are successful.  We also have a section on how you can help.
